Pre-Planning

Advanced Planning

Prearranging your funeral is a simple and secure way to provide for your final arrangements. The advantages to pre-arranging are many, but most importantly, it ensures that your wishes will be carried out, down to the last detail. It is a valuable and protected investment and is one of the kindest gifts you can give your family. We understand that making the many decisions which come at a time of loss can be difficult and overwhelming. We offer our support by providing you with options as you consider making arrangements.

Here are some things to consider if you are undecided…

  • Pre-arranging will relieve your family from the hundreds of decisions that need to be made.
  • Pre-arranging freezes the funeral home’s prices so you will never pay more for services or merchandise.
  • Pre-arranging allows you to pre-pay for your funeral expenses all at once.
  • Pre-arranging safeguards funds from Medicaid spend-down.
  • Pre-arranging insures that your final wishes are fulfilled. 
  • Pre-arranging protects your investment by involving the funeral home, an insurance company and your family in your plan.
  • Pre-arrangements are completely transferable should you move later in life.
  • Pre-arrangements are flexible, allowing you to change your plan whenever you choose.
  • Pre-arrangements offer many payment options.
  • Life insurance does not provide fro any of the above criteria.

We would be honored to talk with you. Please contact us at your convenience to make arrangements in person with one of our caring funeral professionals.
